    I'm finally packing my bags and I'm unsure what to pack for my hopeful water. birth. What are others planning to wear or what did you wear?
    Midwife told me you'll end up naked and wont care but I know i did care when I had ben and although maybe at the end I'll be less worried but I know in the earlier stages I won't be naked!

    I have watched a few water births on utube, and most ladies are wearing bikini tops on there. I don't plan on having a water birth, but if I did I think I would at least want a bit of cover up top to start with! :)

    I'm just going to wear a vest top that doesn't turn see through when wet! I nearly bought a tankini top other day but decided its not worth extra money cos I won't be able to wear it afterwards, and a vest top will be fine :)

    I'm bringing a bikini top I have that I don't have matching bottoms to in case it gets ruined :p Looking at buying a swim skirt as well, for some down below cover that I can keep on the whole time, but will only buy if I find a really cheap one!

    Lol I will be the naked one too! But being nudie doesn't bother me that much at the best of times :rofl:

    But I completely understand wanting to have something to cover up for modesty. My sister said she ended up naked and did not care but had brought a bikini top with her just in case and was really glad as she said it made her more relaxed before the labour. ASOS have a big sale on and you can pick up bikini tops super cheap so defo worth having and then you have the choice when it comes to it.

    I'd like a water birth and wasn't intending on taking anything. They don't let into pool until 4cm dilated apparently at my hosp, and I thought if I was at 4cm and having contractions last thing I'd care of is anyone seeing my saggy wee boobs lol. ESP when there'll be vag investigations happening which would bother me a bit more.

    Think I'm more worried about jobbying in the pool, ESP with husband in room :wall2: :shock::whistle::lol:

    Aren't you all making your own birthing pool outfit like the fashion student on OBEM???!!! Since my teaching assistants at school saw this they are constantly saying they are going to sew me an outfit... Only problem is the only thing they reckon they can get their hands on is felt - not sure how well this will stand up in the water!!!! Ha ha!!
